What attributes to a pleasant hotel stay? The lush interior and the oh-so-comfy bed? The in-house fragrance and the overall cleanliness? Personalised and impeccable service? The view, or the F&B options? The proximity to the main areas of Singapore?
Whatever you are looking for, The Fullerton Bay Hotel probably has them all covered. We all have our favourite brands, and hotels are no exception. The Fullerton brand is in our list, and when we were invited for a one-night stay at one of the best hotels in Singapore, it was with much delight and excitement that we packed our bags and checked in to the gorgeous 99-room property that is perched atop the waters of the Marina Bay area. Needless to say, the view is a stunning one – a panoramic one that overlooks the beautiful skyline of Singapore, including Esplanade, the Floating Platform and the iconic Marina Bay Sands.
And our humble abode for that night was the Premier Bay View Room with Jacuzzi – quite a mouthful, but in essence, The Perfect Room for a couple. We had all the privacy that we needed, and being located on the first level makes it feel like we were staying in a water bungalow. An afternoon of soaking in the jacuzzi and hearing the calm ripples from the waters is such an indulgence and one that is unique to our experience with Fullerton Bay Hotel.
There is also a rooftop pool on the 5th level for guests who prefer to swim around in the sheer space, and to make things even sweeter, there are pool butlers who go around with fresh towels and light refreshments like fruit kebabs. This is what we meant by personalised service, one that you can hardly find in any other large-scale and overly commercialised hotels.
At the lobby of the hotel is La Brasserie, easily one of the most romantic restaurants in Singapore. A venue so gorgeous that it works perfectly for all occasions. While you are staying in the hotel, you should go for an afternoon tea and treat yourself to a fine selection of scones, petite sandwiches and delicate cakes. Lantern is a stylish rooftop bar to enjoy a cocktail before retreating to the comfort of your room.
Thinking of giving your partner a surprise this Valentine’s Day? The hotel has a “Time for Romance” room package which is available over the Valentine’s Day weekend from 14 to 16 Feb 2014 at S$668++/night for its deluxe room. It comes with a three-course dinner, butler-drawn candle and rose petal bath, and breakfast at La Brasserie.
The Fullerton Bay Hotel is a hotel that effortlessly combines excellent restaurants and bars, a super luxe design, and a good location with a terrific view.
